i love you to the moon & back

You bet this is going to be a mooshy post.  Seriously, be ready.  Tonight Mike has school which means a LONG day at home with my little boy.  I decided to take Max on a dinner date of his choice...Chic Fil A. I know, so mooshy gooshy. haha. Anyway, as we were sitting there... a mother and her son {probably around 17, 18 years of age walk in and sit in the booth next to us.  First thing that stuck out to me was "how the heck did this woman get her teenage BOY to go to dinner with her?" and my next thought was they look like they're having a great time together..  Ok now cue the tears because this was the most beautiful thing i've ever seen.  This probably sounds so silly but to all you mamas out there, you understand.  I couldn't help but be nosy, had to listen to the teenage boys stories that he told his mom and the great ears the mother had.  This is exactly what I want so badly.  This desire has never peaked as much as it has tonight.... I want to be that mother and son who go to a restaurant and can talk about anything and enjoy each others company.  I know it sounds so simple and I'm sure this is every moms dream.  But there was something about this couple that stood out.  You could SEE their love, HEAR their laughter and FEEL the respect that they had for each other.  It was like getting hit by a bus.  I'm so grateful that I was able to witness such great examples to me { and they have no idea }.  I know every relationship can't be perfect and obviously things aren't always going to be green & pretty.  But to have the best relationship that you can have will be enough for me.  I love my sweet little boy and feel so lucky to be his momma.  Max, I hope that we can have that relationship of trust, love and respect.  I love you to the moon & back.
